Soon to be in my shop {Fabulous Faceted Chalcedony}

I purchased a few fabulous faceted Chalcedony that I plan on adding to my shop soon once I get the chance to make them into rings and/or pendants. Chalcedony is hands down one of my favorite stones to wear and work with. There’s something about the milky transparent blue color that grabs me. I wear a Chalcedony ring quite often and I get the MOST compliments over any other ring that I wear. People are often drawn to this stone’s soft coloring. This is one stone that will be a constant staple in my shop. These stones are 12mm and are naturally this color, not heated. Approx 7.15cts each.

These will be set in Silver and 14kt Gold since this pale blue is lovely with both metals.

I also had a first today. I’ve been unhappy with my photography for quite some time. Count years. I don’t have time to self teach myself proper photography so I’ve always been scared to go “manual”. That to me is a very scary word. MANUAL. As in going in blind and hoping for the best. I hated that even though my lighting and set up basically stayed the same over the years, there were times that my wood background appeared less natural and almost washed out. These stones were taken in manual mode with my Canon 50D and I can honestly say this is as close to how they actually look in person.

One day when I have more time I’d like to take lessons from a Photographer to teach me how to go manual permanently for all of my photography. Now that would be awesome.
